Hot and humid weather in southern China lead the modern dairy farming into trouble. If the temperature, humidity and illumination of the cow house, and the noxious gas including carbon dioxide, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide from the breaths of the cows and decomposition of the organic can be monitored in the real time, the trouble because of the weather in the modern dairy farming can be solved. So this paper focuses on the wireless network, though applying the MSP430F149 and Nrf905 chips as the wireless network module, and LTM8901 as the sensing devices, the real-time monitor and processing system for the cow house can be established to solve the trouble of modern cow farming in the south of China. This system has low operating cost and stable property so that it is extremely fit for the hilly terrain in the south of China. Meanwhile, it can be also used in monitoring environmental pollution in the real time.
